I did a search to see what was here on this topic, and other than some fairly old, semi-related threads, I didn't see much, so I thought I would start a thread where people can share stories and experiences when it comes to recording things in the studio. This doesn't necessarily have to be professional level stuff either - home studio recording is still studio recording, even if it isn't quite at the same level of the big boys. I figure we could post about any and all of the following topics: Stuff we've played and recorded Microphones Equipment - compressors, preamps, headphones, monitors, etc Techniques - room mic, horn mic, horn mic + room mic, etc Mixing/effects/EQ techniques Software Room treatment etc. I'll bet Wilmer has A LOT of cool stories he could share about songs he recorded and how things were done and have changed over the years. I just figured it might be a good topic - there are a lot of folks building some modest but fairly capable home studios these days, and we are at a place now where technology has given everyone the ability to do things that previously could only be done by spending money on a professional studio and sound engineer. Anyone want to kick it off?
